Ensembl PlantsCurrent projects (grants) Barley Wheat transPLANTFuture plans How to coordinate explosive growth?
Current projectsWheat Part of the genome sequencing consortium. Money for sequencing / Assembly? / A ‘gene-space’ site. One position (starting soon)Barley Part of the genome sequencing consortium. Develop resources for the community (EnsBarley). One position (starting soon)
Current projectstransPLANT A trans-national computer infrastructure for PLANT genomic science Two positions Me + one developer position (currently hiring)Motivation Massive growth in data acquisition Many opportunities for crop improvement Key parts of plant infrastructure are missing
transPLANT Work Packages 7. Reference repository for genomes 8. Architecture for plant genomic complexity 9. Archive for plant variation 10. Linking genotype to phenotype 11. Information retrieval systems 12. Algorithm extension and development
How to coordinate explosive growth? Community annotation Wiki-style solutions? Genomes as a service SourceForge for genes Tools for communities and genomes? rather than a central Check out archive Modify Check in your new assembly?
